UNIST’s main homepage has recently been recognized with an Award of Excellence in both Education and Mobile Web Services at the 2016 Web/App Award Korea.
The 2016 Web/App Award Korea is an award ceremony hosted by the Korea Internet Professionals Association (KIPFA) and organized by the I-Award Committee. UNIST was given the prestigious award for the implementation and the success of the website.
The evaluation committee consisting of 3,000 leading domestic experts selects and evaluates examples of practical and innovative websites and applications that have been either newly built and reorganized throughout the year.
“We are pleased to honour UNIST for their work in developing this website. It demonstrates their good services to their users, making information available and user-friendly,” says the evaluation committee of 2016 Web Award Korea.
The new website has accomplished the following objectives. It provides an optimal user experience across a wide range of devices (from mobile phones to desktop computer monitors), as well as improved performance and loading speed.
The website also provides the publications and media releases of UNIST, including the newsletter, by popular demand. Moreover, background images and content boxes also respond to resizing and scaling each time you reconnect, adding freshness to the website.
“We wanted to create a webpage that actively reflects UNIST’s challenging spirit, which is to become a world-class research-oriented institute,” says the UNIST Public Relations Team who created the website. “We have also created a news site, dedicated to sharing important UNIST stories, research breakthroughs, and media resources.”
